Apparently, I'm not the only one with Frank Lloyd Wright on the brain. Lynn comments as well, and she's responding to yet someone else. There seems to be a big disconnect between Wright's apparent view of buildings as "walk-through sculpture" and the more general, public view of buildings as, well, places for stuff to happen, whether it's lives being lived, business being done, or art being shown. From what I know about Wright (and that, really, isn't much), he didn't seem to consider function much in his designs.
But I still enjoy looking at his buildings.
